The End of Page 3? Nope, Not Yet #page3isback

Well, it looks like The Sun played a huge joke on the rest of The Media and the #nomorepage3 campaign. This was tweeted earlier this evening. Tomorrow's #Page3… pic.twitter.com/pzyZ7Qhe9N — The Sun (@TheSun) January 21, 2015 Well, you know what they say, no publicity is bad publicity – that 2nd pic showing a close-up of […]

4 Months of This…

I saw this, frankly, brilliant meme on twitter yesterday. it pretty much sums up what the next four months are going to be like for us Brits. I feel really quite depressed about the following sentence. I’m not looking forward to this election campaign one little bit. This how I feel. I can’t help it […]

The End of Page 3 #nomorepage3

So it looks like The Sun’s Page 3 has gone the way of the dodo. And to be honest, I don’t know how I feel about it. First thing’s first, I don’t read The Sun. I don’t even look at the pictures. My dad still buys it every day, and for a while in my […]

What “Freedom of Speech” Means to Me

Those of you who know me know that I’m not reactionary by nature. I may have a fiery temper, but I’ve learned to keep it pretty much in check. Lots of things about the world we live in annoy the proverbial f*ck out of me, but I generally let it boil just under the surface […]

A Sign of Things to Come – It’s going to be a Long 7 Months

Last week, The Labour Party released a secretly recorded tape of a Government Minister, Lord Freud, making ill-advised comments about disabled people and the minimum wage. Now, it’s clear this was a cynical attempt by Labour to make the minister and the Government look bad – part of Labour’s election strategy for next May is […]

Facebook idiocy strikes again

I have no words. Really, I don’t. This article in the Daily Mail (again – sorry), is about Facebook removing the page for Warwick University Rowing Club because they were using it to promote their charity calender, because they thought it was pornographic. Well, that’s how the Mail put it, but we all know that […]

So Much for Equality

This comes from the Daily Mail (no surprise there then). A wife has been fined £300 for assaulting her husband, who has MS and needed 13 stitches. The article treats it as a joke story, but I can’t help think that if *he* had assaulted *her* then the sentence would have much more severe. Maybe […]

One day ‘An eminent Lord’ – and the next – ‘A Child Sex Apologist’

Always an interesting read, Anna Raccoon hits the nail on the head with this one. My, oh, my – the Conspiri-loons are fair drumming their heels in the Twitter aisles this morning. Monstrous tantrums. So near the sweetie counter – and yet so far! Was it only Monday – two days ago – that Baroness Elizabeth Butler-Sloss […]

Lado has a problem

I can well believe this took place. Of the 5 years I spent as a teacher, one of them was doing almost exclusively supply work. During that time, I had similar happen to me.

30KK? You Must be JoKKing

Yesterday, I started off the Grumpy Blog by sharing a article from the Daily Mail (that last bastion of Great British Journalism – Not) about a woman who claims to have Britain’s largest fake boobs at size 30 KK. If you haven’t read the article, you can find it here. My reason for sharing the […]
